Beseda sick je pridevnik, ki se uporablja za slabo počutje, ki pa ponavadi ni resno bolezensko stanje. Največkrat besedo uporabimo, če nam je slabo v želodcu. Lahko označuje splošno slabše počutje, povezano s slabostjo v želodcu.

  • Whenever I go on a boat, I feel sick.
  • I feel sick. It must be something I ate.

PAZITE: ko ostanemo doma zaradi kakršnekoli bolezni, gremo na sick-leave.

V ameriški angleščini se beseda sick pogosto uporablja tudi za splošno označevanje bolezni ali slabega počutja. V britanski angleščini pa se, ko ne gre za slabost v želodcu, razume kot psihična bolezen oziroma žaljiva izjava glede duševnega stanja osebe.

  • You are sick.
